The University of Florida Department of Emergency Medicine seeks to improve the design, delivery, and implementation of healthcare through rigorous research and scholarship .

Our work extends from bench to bedside, addressing critical issues relevant to the treatment of emergency medicine patients in pre-hospital, community, academic, and international settings. UF emergency medicine faculty conduct research in a multitude of fields including neurological and cardiac emergencies, palliative care, resuscitation science, medical education, and health equity.

We feel that developing and supporting junior researchers is a key component of our academic mission.  The Department supports faculty pursuing institutional and federally-funded training programs.  The University of Florida Clinical and Translational Science Institute  houses multiple opportunities and resources to support developing and established clinical scientists.
